Icon Why

Why buy ISBN?

ISBNs are linked to essential information allowing book-sellers, and readers, to know what book they are buying, what the book is about, and who the author is. ISBNs are the global standard for identifying titles ISBNs are used world-wide as a unique identifier for books. They are used to simplify distribution and purchase of books throughout the global supply chain. Most retailers require ISBNs to track book inventory Without an ISBN, you will not be found in most book stores, either online or down the street from your house. Buying an ISBN is your first step to insure that your book is not lost among the +700,000 titles published a year in English alone.

Icon What

What is Metadata?

Simply stated: data about data. Your book has information, and that information has information. Metadata is not independent of the information in the book since it describes the book. In fact, our full content indexing metadata is pulled directly from the content of the book. If the book is about wilderness travel, for example, the metadata will reflect that. It is true of course that metadata also describes other attributes of a book that are not directly linked to the book’s content: number of pages, e.g., or the date of publication.

Why is Metadata important?

Metadata or bibliographic data provides buyers information about your titles. It is the information you want to see displayed on a retailer’s website.
